The training system is the double cordon system. The vinification, starting from the manual harvest with careful care in the selection of the grapes, proceeds with the destemming and an immediate separation of the must from the skins, in the hours following the collection and start of fermentation at a controlled temperature (12-14 ° C) in a small stainless steel tank; at the end of this process, which lasts for a period of at least 25 - 28 days, the wine is decanted into an 11 hl Slavonian oak barrel, where it is then aged for about 3 months. Finally it is bottled following sterile filtration.
